I’m trying to replace my steering helm and cable. They are loose and the cable is old and the sheath is beat up. I can’t seam to figure out the helm. I have removed the back cable housing, the steering hub nut and the bottom set screw and the inside seams to be locked in place. What am I missing.

You're looking at a standard tapered steering shaft with a keyway. You will need to use a gear puller or make one (sketch at bottom of picture) to pull it off the shaft. Put the bolt back in and put the gear puller pressing the bolt. use the steering wheel bolts to hold on to the wheel hub. Once some pressure is applied, a GENTLE tap of the puller or bolt should free it . Good Luck

Thank you. That worked. I used the puller and it pulled out. Now I need to order a new one. Thanks for the reply
